For one year, the opera in St. Margareten’s career remained silent. In 2019, she celebrates her return from Opera of All Operas: Mozart’s Magic Flute under the direction of Caroline Piencos and Cornelius Ogon has turned the opera house in Burgenland from July 10 into a terrible landscape around the celestial cloud vortex. On Thursday, the details were presented at a press conference.
Because with the details, it is not so easy in front of a lush natural background – especially in the opera, which was “really meant for a very small theater,” as explained by the designer Raimund Bauer. The dilemma was solved with the help of a centralized cloud vortex, in the center of which it is played, among other places.
Director: Carolin Pienkos and Cornelius Ozonya
“What's in it?” Was the first question she asked as a director, Caroline Pienkos said, and in the case of the Sauer flute it was: a lot. "There are so many elements between fantastic figures and social utopias, you need to cut a trail." After the "bat" in "La Scala" in Milan, he again became a directorial duet with her husband Cornelius Ozon. He led a "great, wonderful dialogue" for 17 years, he said about his decision to "go to the other side."
Max Simonishek as "Plappergeno"?
The actor was won not only for the director, but also for one of the central roles: Max Simoniszek will give Papageno a figure that holds not only all the other characters together, but also the theatrical environment between the opera, drama and magic combination, ”Simonikchek says. The fact that he is not a trained singer promises to be a problem. "Maybe it will be more like a talker."
With Attilio Glazer as Tamino, Ana Maria Labin as Pamina, Luke Stoker as Sarastro and Danae Office as Queen of Night, conductor Carsten Januška – he already set up a Libestrank career in 2016 – especially for proven names in smaller Cast especially on "the offspring, which interesting rebelled." The orchestra was also recruited, and after an intensive selection process, the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra was chosen. “The Magic Flute” is “one of the greatest compositions”, primarily emphasized by Januska due to the combination of stylistic elements – from the character of the folk song Papageno to the baroque counterpoint – “which are combined without judgment”. It also reveals the true humanism of the work.
Harmony now allowed to demonstrate their heroes after years of controversy between the Land and Esterhazy Foundation Group in the spring. The adviser on culture and the appointed governor Hans Peter Doskozil (SPÖ) emphasized that Burgenland in the future “will manifest itself from its traditional side” in the field of culture. So far, not all the details have been discussed, but he is in a good mood, “that we will sit here again next year,” and at the same time will be able to present a general solution to the Haydn theme. Esterhazy boss Stefan Otrabuy thanked Doskosil for his "excellent relationship", which does not make "gifts" but always seeks good solutions. Details of the agreements on support between the state and the fund have not yet been announced.
